The FOX TV show of Glee is a very popular production amongst the current teenage generation, mainly because of the themes that are involved/portrayed, and the various covers of Top-40 music hits that the characters perform throughout the show as well. With this show being so popular, and having an average of ten million viewers, it is a great medium to subtly insert product placement.

During last night's (11/29/2011) episode of "I Kissed a Girl," the pessimistic coach Sue Sylvester (played by Jane Lynch) mentioned "My iPhone 5 is vibrating. It's a new feature of the iPhone 5. They vibrate!" With this in mind, I have heard from various iPhone users that existing iPhones already have a vibrate feature; however, with the latest iOS 5 update, what was probably intended to be communicated by Sue is that the latest iOS update and iPhone 5 will have "custom vibration options." These customized vibrations can also be utilized on the iPhone 4(S) (if you have iOS 5) as shown in the YouTube video below.

Even with the mixed-up iPhone feature mention, the Twitter community has reacted...
